Corsage

We recently went to a close friend's wedding reception at a country church.
We only had one day (Two days to be exact, but one day didn't count because it was Thanksgiving, and we were busy eating, etc. :D ) to prepare so I put together my outfit quickly. It ended up really plain and boring so I decided to whip up a corsage.


Pattern: Lion Brand "Crochet Rosettes / Flowers"
Yarn:Patons SWS in Natural Navy
Hook: J/10/6mm
It took only about 30 minutes to make this corsage!
I sewed on 3 small black buttons in the center.


I have 2 more colors of this yarn, and I'm thinking about using them to make some more flowers. :)

Ornaments

I've been cooking all day today for tomorrow!
Finally sat down and decided to update you all with my X'mas ornaments. :)
I made all except one ornament (skate) from the leaflet.


Again, the patterns are from Leisure Arts #4241 "Ornaments to Crochet 3 Ways".
The yarn I used was Red Heart Sport, and the main stitch was slip stitch.

The ornaments have been mailed out to my nephew and niece already. :)
They haven't received the package yet so I really should email my sister to tell her not to peek. :D

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!!

Fashion Cable Knit Bag

I finished this bag more than a month ago...


Pattern: Fashion Cable Knit Bag from Michaels
I knit this bag with 2 strands of Patons Classic Merino Wool held together so the bag is nice and thick, and it was a quick project.
I'm especially proud of the lining. :D


I can't help but to knit this year because I just LOVE traditional knitting, and it seems to be back! :)))
I couldn't resist these Patons booklets when I saw them: Big Chill, Snow Country, Cables.

Does any of you know a good wool yarn that doesn't felt?

If I lived in a state where it snows some, I'd be knitting sweaters... I was still wearing T-shirt today, and it's NOVEMBER! This is just crazy. :(

I have 4 more FOs to post (both knit & crochet projects), but later. ;D

What am I making now

I love this leaflet!!!
All of my friends who come to my crochet classes wanted one too when they saw mine, and they all ordered one. :D


Leisure Arts "Ornaments to Crochet 3 ways"
I've made 7 ornaments already, and I'm working on 8th. I'll probably end up making all of the ornaments in this leaflet. They are our current projects as well for my crochet classes.
You can use worsted weight / sport weight / #10 thread for these ornaments, and I chose sport weight. The main stitch used for these patterns is slip stitch unlike the traditional single crochet stitch used for many small projects.
My ornaments are going to be a gift so photos will be posted after they have been received by a recipient. :)

By the way, I found some nice crochet & knitting patterns (Click the Adobe icons below project photos): http://www.clover.co.jp/hand/hand54a.htm
I'm really sorry, but I won't be able to answer pattern/diagram questions..., but hope you like them! :)
